Risk and compliance: Business continuity

User engagement

"Prepare for the unexpected and safeguard your operations with a robust business continuity plan, ensuring resilience and continuity in the face of disruptions or emergencies."

Ensuring your organisation is resilient enough to continue operating following an adverse event requires considerable forethought and preparation.

A well-designed business continuity plan will seek to limit the damage caused by, say, a flood in your server room or a ransomware attack, and ensure your staff can continue to work until your systems can be restored to normal.

Rather than try to anticipate and plan for all types of adverse event, our approach is to focus on your organisation’s key operational dependencies and the practical, cost-effective contingency arrangements that can reasonably be put in place.

We would then work with you to build a formal framework of business continuity procedures, agreeing protocols for the level of response required, and a schedule of responsibilities and actions for managers and staff to refer to in the event of an emergency or disaster.

"Unlike many consultants, Adapta won’t tell you what you expect to hear. They will be very honest and challenging and, even if some of what they say is uncomfortable to hear, it means you end up getting better advice."
